When I work as a music director, I often play for rehearsals or in the orchestra. I also play for rehearsals and auditions for other shows. Listed below are the shows I’ve worked on in various capacities.
Music Director and Pianist
I have worked simultaneously as rehearsal keyboard and in some kind of director capacity on the following shows:
Cats (MD, rehearsal piano, conductor)
Disney's The Little Mermaid (MD, rehearsal piano, K2)
Disney's Beauty and the Beast (MD, rehearsal piano, K1)
For shows I've directed that included recorded tracks, I generally play from the vocal score for teaching rehearsals, as it allows me to adjust tempos and double parts as needed.
Ensemble OR Rehearsal Keyboard
Sometimes it is a great pleasure to observe another music director and assist at the keyboards. I have been exclusively the keyboard player for the following:
Parade (rehearsal pianist, piano/accordion)
Something Rotten (K3)
Ragtime (rehearsal pianist)
Young Frankenstein (rehearsal pianist)
The Sound of Music (rehearsal pianist)
Godspell at The Players Theatre Company (rehearsal pianist)
[Title of Show] at Iconotheatrix, Houston (Larry)
Songs for a New World with Houston Family Arts Center (now called Stageworks Theatre) (rehearsal and performance pianist)
I have programmed the keyboard books for a number of shows, and modified rented programming for others.
